Georgia WR Butler lists LSU among favs

Brice Butler, one of the South's most sought-after wide receivers, told Tiger Rag that after visiting a handful of schools that LSU is definitely one of his favorites.

The 6-2, 185-pound speedster runs a 4.45 40, benches 245 and squats 340.


Last season, Butler shared catches with another top receiver and still managed 35 grabs for 680 yards and nine touchdowns. 


How is recruiting going for the 4-star wide out?


"After all my unofficial visits, LSU is still up there," said Butler. "I don't really have top teams right now, but LSU is a team I like a lot. I like the coaching staff and everything about them."


Butler's father knows LSU receivers coach D.J. McCarthy and that relationship is definitely benefiting the Tigers.


"They've known each other for a while now," said Butler. "I think they either used to coach together or play together. It's something that helps for recruiting."


Recently, LSU coaches came to visit Butler during the spring, not once but twice.


"Coach (Bradley Dale) Peveto came twice and when he came the second time coach McCarthy came with him," said Butler. "I had a good practice that day so it was good that they got to see that."


Like most of America, Butler watched the 2007 NFL draft and noticed that LSU had two receivers drafted in the first round.


"That means a lot to a recruit like me," said Butler. "To me it means that that could be me in a couple of years."
